Droguería Sarrá

Teniente Rey & Compostela, Havana, Cuba

This firm produced perfins from 1914 to 1954.

It produced more perfin covers on more stamps over a longer period of time than any other Cuban company. Here are some covers (and a custom declarations form!) produced in that time. Each cover is different in some respect from every other, yet they all have the same general information.
